The Video assistant referees (VAR) technology will be used in the Premier League next season, after the clubs agreed in principle to the move.
The clubs were given an update at a meeting on Thursday, as the EPL will now make a request to the International Football Association Board and Fifa to employ VAR.
The technology was used at the World Cup in Russia in June-July and is already being used in Italian Serie A and German Bundesliga.
The Premier League has been carrying out “non-live” trials this season, and according to a statement on Thursday, the testing programme will continue for the rest of the season.
Meanwhile, the VAR technology will also be used in the UEFA Champions League from next season.
